Carbon hydros custom

The Carbon variants are a special series of cars in Burnout Paradise. The six vehicles included have the highest statistics of their variants and are arguably some of the best cars in the game.

These carbon vehicles are original Paradise cars refitted with a special carbon fiber body and chrome trim. The Carbon finish is unchangeable and cannot be painted in standard conditions.

The carbon variants are immensely superior to their normal counterparts because they have had boosts in every statistical field and because of their boost type conversions.

Carbon cars can only be unlocked as rewards for completing Freeburn tasks such as landing all Super Jumps or beating all Showtime Road Rules.
